Games that got recalled and the remarkable reasons why

GamesRadar - Don't mess with the Quran. Seems easy enough advice to follow, right? For some game developers, this was a lesson learned the hard way, resulting in that dreaded disaster known as a recall. See, recalls aren’t just for tainted medicine and toys that give kids lead poisoning. Game publishers also live in fear of being forced, either by law or public outcry, to request every copy of their product back in a large-scale recall. And the end result--the callous obliteration of every reclaimed disc--has got to suck for morale and sales alike. (Culture)
